How to make it

  • In the Ziploc bag add all of the ingredients except for the crackers.
  • Close up the ZipLoc Bag and mix ingredients well by shaking the bag.
  • Add all 4 sleeves of Saltine Crackers and close the bag.
  • Turn the bag over several times to coat crackers with the chile and oil mixture.
  • Let the bag rest for a couple of hours, turning the bag every 15 minutes or so.
  • If you can wait til the next day, they are even better. This is one you can make ahead of your party and it will keep really well

    Its better not to put the oil and seasoning in a bag to shake up place them flat in a cookie pan.. mist olive oil on them tell they have a good coating(both sides) mix your seasoning up in a shaker sprinkle as much as you want to your taste (both sides) place oven on 350 dgF and cook for about 7 to 12 min depending on how crispy you want them to be but not so long that it dries them out.... PS i always add a lil extra seasoning in the Zip-Lock or pickle jar

    Julietann! That is a good idea for coating them, thanks for sharing

    Instead of placing them in a ziplock bag put the contents in a clean 2 gallon pickle jar and roll the jar. This gives all the crackers an even taste. Learned that from a co-workers husband. he loves them. Their a hit at office parties. I serve them with ranch dressing - but I also serve them hotter than usual.

    I am going to try this to ensure crispness: Once the crackers are coated i'm going to spread them on a cookie sheet & put in oven on lowest setting & let them crisp up for about 15/ 20 minutes. We'll see what happens!

    As for Dip, any kind of white dip, i.e. ranch or onion dip would be good, especially if you made the hotter version, and I think Guacamole would be good too!

    I never would have thought of taking these to a nursing home. I bet they did like them.

    I made these last week and doubled the Cayenne and Pepper Flakes and they were a bit spicier. My aunt loved this spicier version, but then she is at the nursing home and the food can be pretty bland there! ;-)

    I made these crackers last night and they are crisp. The oil does not make them soggy. I plan on storing them in a plastic container.

    I will be trying these soon. I read a book once that described something like this, but it did not give all of the ingredients. Thank you so much for sharing. I will let you know how they turn out. Kilby

    These sound similar to the oyster cracker recipe with oil and hidden valley. I put these in the oven for about 15 min.

    These sound really good but I'm also concerned about their crispness.

    They don't really get soggy. The 1 and 1/3 cup of oil seems to be just enough to coat a full box of saltines without having excessive oil
